The Sacred Pipe is a tool of prayer. The mouthpiece made of wood is the male principle, the element of air, the sky. The stove, made of red stone, represents the female principle, the element of earth, Mother Earth. The mixture of tobacco and other herbs and barks allude to the plants, to the water and of course their ignition is the symbol of the fire element. The act of uniting the two parties is symbolic action that represents the union of the masculine and the feminine.
